An EXCELLENT gift! :D

Not much this year, but wife and I are going to hit the sales for our main gifts. So far:

Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2013 [signed]
Malt Whisky Yearbook 2013
Large milk Toblerone
Medium white Toblerone
Jack Daniels Fudge
Brian Wilson 'In The Key of Disney' CD
Leather gloves
Money

And a ring from my Father. I knew of this months ago as I had to choose a design. The ring is made from my mother's gold jewelery, in memorium - she passed July '07. Both brothers got the same gift. Merry Christmas, mother. xx

I think my sister-in-law is also sending something over from Japan.

It's been a retro explosive Xmas for me, firstly I got 2 x retro mugs, an Atari ST and C64 mugs ..red hot! , then it's gets amazing..followed with Atari Inc. Business is fun book, and then the bomb shell, an Archos Gamepad to play all my retro android based classics he way they where intended to be played :) , with lashings of new after shaves, the emperor palpatine's bath robe and a electric tooth brush :)

All in all a wonderful Xmas

Hope you all had a great one too.
